this sounds like Pulp Fiction.

actually if it's a business registered as a bar then they were breaking the laws from the start as bars are not allowed to open as yet, restaurants are but bars are not, secondly they were selling alc

selling alcohol from a business registered as bar is not allowed and selling alcohol from a restaurant and consuming it on site is not permitted.

since restaurants are allowed to open this was all about drinking alcohol 

 

from the picture - if they were observing distancing looks like they were forced into a tight group by police

Probably, twas so when I left BKK on 27th March.

Yes, they will severely punish the foreigners, the Thais maybe a B500 baht fine and a wai and a further B250 if they were not wearing a motorbike helmet.

...but how many farang earn 3XX Baht a day? (or less).

They don´t go to a bar and pay 90 Baht for a beer.

Exactamundo.

Fines are proportionate to means. (Based on the assumption that falang are rich!?).

There was a similar report about Pussycat bar in Pattaya in TVF recently. 5 Thais 3 farangs arrested in identical circumstances. All but the owner were fined 2k baht. Thais and farangs.

Right. A Thai with a Mercedes pays less than a foreigner with a scooter.

No, but it does in the UK.

Then again, there's a perception with many Thais that farang are wealthier, which us falang know is not the case. Also, unlike in the west, farang do not enjoy equality with the natives.

 

(It's a shame we can't play the race-card in Thailand, as also happens in the west, what I call inverted-racism).

A Thai with a Mercedes, a good one!, pays nothing at all!!!  :1zgarz5:

 

The chauffeur, driver, butler, maid, servant did it....
